Title:GTX COMBUSTION FACILITY
RCRA Online Number:14575
Date:10/03/2001

Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: Under RCRA, facilities must obtain a permit prior to operating a hazardous waste combustion facility. States authorized to implement the federal RCRA permit program have the primary responsibility to ensure that each permit is protective and meets all necessary requirements. The permit issued to the GTX facility by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) was rescinded and later overturned in Louisiana Courts. EPA, LDEQ and GTX have taken measures to add to the protectiveness of the facility’s permit, including upgrading existing combustion equipment, pre-trial and post-trial burn risk assessments, and hazardous waste burning limitations.
